If so, then let's see him get some balls in games. A full time Butler surely sounds better than a less than part time Parker. I like Butler's size, but why was he available for the Dolphins and at such a cheap price?

When the Dolphins signed wide receiver Brice Butler during their bye week, they did more than simply add depth for the rest of this season.

They might also have found their replacement for DeVante Parker on next year’s roster.

With the Dolphins likely needing to create cap space to fill needs this offseason, the odds are against Miami retaining Parker at the $9.4 million he’s owed next season, barring an amazing close to the season. That amount is guaranteed only in the event of a serious injury.

And though Butler said he wasn’t given an explanation, it was notable that when the Dolphins signed Butler on Nov. 14, they gave him a two-year deal through 2019. He will earn $810,000 next season.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the Dolphins open next season with Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Butler as their receivers.

The Dolphins coaching staff thinks highly of Butler, and it’s telling that he received 34 offensive snaps last week, compared with none for Leonte Carroo.

That’s called confidence boys. I feel much better about this Brice fellow. Imagine all of the touchdowns we will be getting on such a team friendly contract. He clearly cares about the team otherwise he would have went somewhere else for much higher numbers that he deserves.

Well, here are his stats. Definitely underappreciated wherever he has gone. Gase has found a diamond in the rough.

:haha

Superb catch here by Butler. As quickly as Butler has caught on with us, I am trying to understand how we were able to add this talented WR to our group a few weeks ago.

Sometimes it just seems like players need to find the right system that they fit into. How many times have you seen players move to another team and play at a high level.

Parker needs to find the stay healthy system.

For Parker's current role, well yeah it makes perfect sense. Get 2 or 3 targets per game and not be relied upon for much. Make the occasional athletic catch for a score or big gain. You pay Butler $800K to do that rather than $9 million for Parker.

Just a shame he never elevated to more of a go to guy.

Dolphins will make a decision on Parker by Wednesday. The decision has already been made. It's a shame, because Parker is more talented than Butler. Will he take a restructured contract? A lot of us fans would like to see The Parker Train leave the station.

Parker is currently under team control for 2019 because the Dolphins have a $9.4 million fifth-year option on him. That option becomes fully guaranteed on Wednesday so the Dolphins must decide by then whether to do nothing and retain the player at that price or rescind the option.

But the Dolphins have seriously considered the possibility or retaining Parker for less. Much less.

The Dolphins can offer Parker a one-year contract that would be more cap friendly and allow the player to remain in Miami. That one-year contract offer could easily be in the $2-$3 million range and basically present Parker with a prove-it situation with the team that drafted him in 2015.
